What a great project, very impressed. Can't wait to see it finished.

 

I don't see any problem in recreating vehicles that don't exist. They have been building new traction engines for quite a few years now. Why shouldn't it be the same for military vehicles.

 

Good luck with the rest of it. :wow:

Must try harder to find these threads in future, looking superb and a great credit to you. Love the subject as well but i am biased, hopefully we will bump into each other and get some pics together as i am into north africa myself. Crack on with the work its looking good. Friend of mine did a marmon herrington on a landrover chasis and recieved no complaints, based on the same problem as you had....just not out there to buyRegards Tim

I know it is bit late to suggest, but a Roll Royce B80 engine would be nice alternative. They seem to be used in the Bentley 4.5 litre replicas.

That’d be great to have it in the car and it will fit but it will have to be for later. cheers bill:)
